Level 1

Postponed due to COVID 19

OBJECTIVE
The Private Practice Experience in Dentistry is designed to give high school and college students the opportunity to learn the clinical and business aspects of a real world dental practice. More than just a shadowing experience, The Private Practice Experience will immerse you in the day-to-day operation of a dental practice. With our 3:1 participant-to-mentor ratio, students will learn from lectures, presentations, hands-on exercises, and chairside involvement in actual dental procedures. Not only will it build your resume, but it will give you first hand experience necessary in making an educated career choice.
 
 
CHOOSING A HEALTHCARE PROFESSION
"Choosing a healthcare profession is difficult.  Thirty+ years ago I chose dentistry and love it. However, I got lucky! I chose dentistry blindly.  I never shadowed a dentist, never knew a dentist personally and hated going to the dentist because it hurt so much!  I chose dentistry because I liked art and science, and loved working with my hands, but I was blind to what it was really like.  I took a gamble and won, but I know many dentists who do not like the profession.  I don't want this to happen to you.  Gain first-hand experience before choosing a career." ~ Dr. David Forlano
